Cowboys cut safety Roy Williams

New, comments

The Dallas Cowboys are in a cutting mood. Jerry Jones pulled the trigger on Terrell Owens last night and now he's done the same for safety Roy Williams.

After attempts to trade the five-time Pro Bowl safety failed, the Cowboys decided to release Williams, their No. 1 draft pick in 2002.

By cutting Williams, the Cowboys save roughly $2 million in salary-cap space in 2009 and close the book on a player who was once the face of the franchise.
